Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich not running for president

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich says he isn't running for president, and he has no plans to run for U.S. Senate, either.

Ehrlich, a Republican, had made several trips to the early nominating state of New Hampshire, but he said Monday in a telephone interview that he hasn't been thinking about entering the crowded GOP presidential primary for some time.

He plans to focus on keeping active through a political action committee. The super PAC is called Turning Point America. Ehrlich, the honorary PAC chairman, says he believes it's a way for him to promote his platform nationally.

A rarely open Maryland Senate seat has sparked conjecture about who may seek to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski, but Ehrlich says he's not thinking about running for Senate now.
